My sister wants me to test my niece’s vocabulary when we visit later this week. So I borrowed a PPVT (Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test) from the Harvard lab. It’s a standardized measure of vocabulary that we often use with kids. Today I realized I never grabbed a score sheet. The score sheet lists the target (correct answer) for each item.

Then, flipping through the pages, it dawned on me: I’ve administered this test so many times that I’ve simply memorized the first ~150 targets!

Maybe this isn’t as impressive as it seems. Each item is a page with 4 pictures, and the target is the name of one of them. Regardless, I’m still feeling a bit proud of my standardized test skills. Though I’m not so great at taking them (ahem, looking at you, GRE…) at least I can administer them!
